2021 is officially upon us and after the chaos that 2020 brought us we are in need of something good!
By this time you should have already set a few goals for your business as well as figuring out some strategies to bring your goals to life. These goals won’t just keep you focused for the year but will encourage you to become disciplined in creating daily habits for your future success.
The two major keys to success are perseverance and discipline!
Incorporating these two keys into these daily habits for success will surely guarantee the growth you’ve desired since the start of your business.
So, what are some daily habits for success?
#1: Daily To-Do Lists:
If you’re a business owner that struggles with focusing or consistency then this is where you need to shift your focus. Every night before bed or at the start of the week take some time to write or type a list of things you have to do.
This requires a lot of discipline and getting used to but if you’re serious about your success you’ll get it done.
#2: Prioritizing Money Making Tasks:
You have started this business for a reason, and that reason must be your main focus! Money making tasks could mean anything from:
- Sending out marketing emails
- promoting on social media
- engaging with past or potential customers…the list goes on!
These things should be the second thing you do every day and also the thing that you pour most of your time into.
While you may think answering emails from anyone who isn’t a client/customer may be important, it doesn’t produce anything for you.
So, after you finish tackling your morning routine, prioritize those money making tasks!
#3: Daily Mindset/Affirmation Routine
Everyone knows that mindset and belief is half of being successful! If you go into working on your business in a negative headspace or not believing in what you are doing then it won’t flourish. This is why it’s important to include meditating and/or affirmations into your morning routine.
Right before you touch your computer for the day, speak greatness over yourself and remove any self-doubt. You can achieve this by using simple “I am…”or “my business is…” affirmations.
Some great affirmations to get your mind on the path to success are:
“I am worthy of greatness and great things.”
“My business is overflowing with income.”
“My business is on the right path to success.”
“My business is successful.”
“I am already standing in my greatness.”
Meditation on top of that a great way to begin your work day!
Relieving your mind of all negative thoughts and focusing your mind and body on success can help improve your concentration while working.
There is one thing I’ve noticed about many small businesses compared to larger companies, they are so afraid of annoying customers.
If you’re an email subscriber to a lot of clothing companies then you see the number of promotional emails they send within a week. Well, this is for a reason and most business owners need to take note.
Promotional emails, social media posts, texts, etc. is the number one way to generate those sales. Now, this doesn’t mean you always have to push hard, but reminders have never hurt anyone.
If you own a service based business then your number one way to promoting is providing valuable information and ending it with a quick call to action.
The same goes for clothing, beauty, etc.!
Promote those new products throughout the day because there are millions of people online at different times. This is the best way to catch as many eyes as you can on your product.
You may be thinking, how am I supposed to have time to promote that often if I have other things to work on? The answer is USING SOCIAL MEDIA SCHEDULERS!
Don’t be afraid to promote your business out to the masses!
